A developer proposed an expanded apartment complex and a new commercial building in two nature preserves next to a shopping mall in Wellington.

Brefrank Inc. proposed change to Wellington’s master plan for development that would allow 140 new residential units and a 9,500-square-foot commercial building on the two preserves totaling 21 acres.

The 17-acre and four-acre preserves are next to the Mall at Wellington Green at 10300 Forest Hill Boulevard.

Changing the master-plan designations of the property would allow Brefrank to expand an apartment complex called Axis at Wellington Green onto the larger, 17-acre preserve.

New apartments would be built on eight acres of the preserve, leaving nine acres as wetlands.

Brefrank would put the commercial building on the four-acre preserve together with a one-acre lake.

The developer believes the lake could mitigate drainage problems in the area, according to Bob Basehart, Wellington’s director of planning, zoning and building.

Wellington planning and zoning staff are reviewing applications filed by Brefrank to advance its development plan.

After the staff review, the proposed project would be considered by Wellington’s Planning, Zoning and Adjustment Board, perhaps as early as March, and then by the Village Council. [Palm Beach Post]Mike Seemuth
